While in New York for client meetings, we had the opportunity to visit the many recently opened exhibits. We’re happy to share these highlights.

Not Vital ‘Everton’ exhibtition views at Sperone Westwater Gallery. Vital created a series of stainless steel sculptures as well as related drawings. These ‘Heads’ are all of a monochromatic palette, ranging from 4.5 to 6.2 feet in height, are pared down to simple contours.
Jacob Hashimoto ‘A Century or Two of Sleep’, 2014 acrylic, paper/Dacron, wood at Mary Boone Gallery.
Jacob Hashimoto ‘Skyfarm Fortress’, 2014 bamboo and kite installation at Mary Boone Gallery.
Caleb Charland ‘Artifact 1601’, 2014, alternative process photography at Sasha Wolf Gallery. Using a red candle, Charland drips wax onto sheets of paper. As the flame burns and exposes the paper, drops of wax fall onto the emulsion. Like the red light in a darkroom, the red wax becomes a small filter, preventing further exposure by the flame. Once Charland achieves his desired pattern of drips he begins the development process.
